Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 09 May 2001 14:08

IFPI, the international recording industry's association -- kinda like global RIAA -- which has members in almost all western countries, including RIAA as a member, has launched a service called Songbird that aims to provide tools for musicians to check what is done with their music.
"Songbird gives music copyright holders a completely new insight into how Napster is using their music and, if they want to, take steps to get it removed," said IFPI Chairman Jay Berman.

The new search tool, developed by Media Enforcer LLC to give smaller players and independents a chance to track their work on Napster, was being publicly offered on the www.iapu.org Internet site from Wednesday, the IFPI said.
